Abrams Gulch/Ridge is a great ride that offers a shorter version of West Eagle. The ride only has one section of steep climbing, and the downhill on Abrams Ridge is fun and challenging. Abrams Gulch is a very mild climb with some scenic portions including historic Abrams settlement. After crossing Abrams Creek, which may be deep depending on the season, the trail climbs steeply for a short distance to intersection marker 7 (see Downloadable Directions). The section between intersection markers 7 and 14 offers the best views and scenic qualities. The ride down Abrams Gulch has some steep downhill that can be quite technical with some exposure. Ride within your abilities on this stretch. The ride ends where it began at the cul-de-sac on Silver Spur. Parking is recommended at the Eagle Ranch Pavilion.
